Birthdays


We all have birthdays from year to year
Some view them as old age drawing near
Celebrate God's precious gift of life to you
Everyone has one, but others now have two

My friend, no one can enter this world twice
Spiritual birth, from above, to accept Christ
Trusting in Jesus alone, for your soul to save
Through His sacrifice, your sins He forgave

My physical birthday happened to be today
Double digit number is the same both ways
It only occurs once in every passing decade
More than a number, His image I am made

Age in the spiritual sense relates to maturity
Everyone at a different stage toward eternity
At spiritual birth, we begin as infants and grow
Changed by the Spirit, beyond what we know

If our faith is only knowledge, we fail to see
Blessings along the journey for you and me
There will be times of trial and tribulation
But everlasting hope, joy, and anticipation

Time spent on this earth is not our final home
It is preparation for when we reach His throne
Be certain you are headed for that glorious place
Freely given to all who are saved by His grace

John 3:3 (Amplified)
Jesus answered him, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you,
that unless a person is born again (anew, from above), he
cannot ever see (know, be acquainted with, and experience)
the kingdom of God.
